#1 You should have posted this in the same thread. Now there are two threads with by you asking the same thing.

#2 - My understanding is that the modem is physically connected to the linux box and you have network cards in both the linux and Windows box.

#3 - I'm assuming you have the two computers connected with a crossover cable and that you are able to ping them from each other.

Since you state that the modem is present in both, I (and likely anyone who would answer) would like yes or no answers to #2 and #3.

When we know that, we can help more. POST IT IN THIS THREAD. Do not make new posts for the same question

On your Linux box (which has a modem connected to the Internet) you can either run a proxy server such as squid or setup Network Address Translation (NAT). Running DHCP is optional, if you want to emulate the windows "connection sharing" then you should run DHCP, however manually configured IP would do. Note that on your windows machine you have to specify the default gateway as the IP address of your Linux box. To setup NAT on your Linux box visit , if you prefer running a proxy server (which would require some configuration on your windows client, such as specifying proxy settings for your browser) then run Squid.
